The Currahee Challenge takes place from the base of Currahee Mountain on the Colonel Robert Sink Trail, the training site of the 501st, 506th, 511th and 517th Parachute Infantry Regiments seen in Band of Brothers, Saving Private Ryan & The Dirty Dozen. Come and join us for an excellent and challenging 5K run/walk or 10K hill run. PLEASE NOTE: the finish line will remain open until 11:30am.
This year the Currahee Challenge is sponsored by the Currahee Military Museum. The Stephens Co. Historical Society Office, Currahee Military Museum, and Stephens Co.

Both the 5K and 10K are very strenuous courses. The start and finish line for both races is on Ayersville Road near the Currahee Memorial. The 5K runs approximately halfway up Currahee Mountain to the water stop and turns around. The 10K last half mile is especially steep. The turnaround for the 10K is at the historic elevation marker as seen on the right. This marker will be sitting on a table near the top of the mountain.
It is recommended that all 10K runners can complete the run in a 2-hour time frame. It is also recommended that all walkers register for the 5K event.
Medals presented for both the 5K and 10K to overall male/female, masters male/female and top three in 10-year age groups, 1st, 2nd and 3rd, starting at 10 & under through 80 & over.
